This is a follow-up from T218265: Mute: Add links to disable email and mute specific user to emails sent via Special:EmailUser.
We should support muting notifications for users from Special:Mute, which is the special page we will be using for T218270: Mute: Add links to the Tools menu on user pages to mute/unmute user and T218266: Mute: Add links to mute specific user to Echo notification. This is also a step forward towards bringing the mute lists closer.
- Add the second checkbox (Mute notifications from this user) on Special:Mute page:
- If a user checks this checkbox and hits save, the user they are muting is added to the Muted users list under the Notifications tab in Special:Preferences.
- After save, the checkboxes and save button go away and a confirmation message displays: User:ABC has been muted. See all muted users in Special:Preferences. - the link goes to Special:Preferences on the wiki they are on.
- If a user lands on Special:Mute with the user they request to mute already being in one or both of the mute lists, those respective checkboxes are already checked. Unchecking a box and saving the form, removes the user from the respective mute list.
Note that this only holds if Echo is installed and enabled. If there is no Echo, we only show the one checkbox that's added in T218265
